WHILE I wholeheartedly agree with the Mayor of Pembroke Dock in his wish to clean up the town, I do wish he had chosen a better phrase than “I want to blitz the town” to express his wishes.
Many people, including myself still remember the Luftwaffe raids in which some 34 people and large sections of the town were destroyed during the Second World War.
The memories of those terrible nights and days will long be with us.
So please give better thought to how you express your intention to improve the look of our beloved town.
Incidentally I have a very special interest in the part of the Mayor’s plan as my late father Mr Edward “Ted”
